    Very nicely done. The caribou Goddard is a fly I tie a lot. The lighter colors in caribou make it easy to match hatches with just a Sharpie.

    Thanks! I've got a lot of Caribou on hand. I need to try tying some.

    I was given a small piece a couple of years ago and was told it was the best available for spinning hair on flies. I need to dig it out and spin some.
